PRIZES AND RANKING
OFFICIAL MEDALS: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd places on the podium.
COPA PÓDIO FORMAT
Copa Pódio has used the round-robin system as the format for its Grands Prix in the MAJOR LEAGUE since its creation in 2011. However, now we are also implementing the round-robin system for their official competitions with the goal of promoting and strengthening Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and helping athletes reach professional levels.
The official championships were launched with the objective of bringing our organization closer to the work of teams spread across Brazil and the world, as well as monitoring the performance of athletes who were previously inaccessible due to the impossibility of following the championships of so many serious organizations spread across Brazil.
ENTERING THE GRAND PRIX
Selection of athletes for Copa Pódio’s acces and professional leagues:
Starting from 14 October 2023, only champions or ranked athletes in official championship or semi-finalistof previous season’s Grand Prix events will be eligible to participate in the main Professional League (Brown and Black belts) and the Acces Leagues (The Orange League, Azules, Purple Games, Iron Brown Belts or other leagues or super fights promoted by the organization).
Find more on the different leagues here.
COPA PÓDIO ATHLETE RANKING
All champions of official championships will become part of Copa Pódio’s official ranking, which will be regularly updated on the organization’s page on Smoothcomp, where each win by points or advantages in championships will count as 1 point in the ranking, and a win by submission will correspond to 3 points.
The ranking points will be cumulative and will not reset between belt ranks, meaning white belt champions will carry their points to the next graduation and the same will happen with all graduations. Regardless of ranking, in any official championship, the organization of Copa Pódio may choose, among the champions, fighters of any rank or age to join the access and main leagues.
